7:03am
a transit officer richard donahue was also injured but dzhokhar tsarnaev escaped, that's the brother known as the man in the white hat. he got away and that's when this manhunt started and the area from water town to boston, that shelter in place was put in and for hours authorities went door to door with no luck. it seemed that the day would end without finding him and certainly that was frustrating for authorities. 6:00 p.m. eastern time the shelter in place was lifted in boston and the surrounding areas but then a short time later the reports of shots fired in water town and that's when that standoff started. then finally police confirmed they had their man saying the terror is over and justice was won. ? we are learning more about the suspect in police custody and his older brother killed thursday. alex savage is live with reaction and details about the suspects. >> reporter: good morning. the two suspected bombers are
7:04am
chechens. their parents can't believe they could have done this and many friends say it doesn't make sense. especially those close to the younger brother. he was a wrestler in high school called popular. he went onto attend the university of massachusetts dartmouth and classmates saw him on campus this week after the bombings. friends don't understand why he would have turned on his adopted home but there are some people who believe that his brother, his older brother is to blame. >> from what i remember from what i know about him he was very sweet, kind, funny, smart, very smart, all round really good person. >> some believe the older brother, 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev forced his younger brother. he was killed during the manhunt. he was an amateur boxer,

married and he had a 3-year-old daughter. his wife identified by several news agencies as cathryn russell issued this statement saying we cannot begin to understand how how this horrible tragedy happened. our daughter has lot of the father of her child. in the aftermath of the horror we know that we never knew tamerlan tsarnaev. one of his aunts said that he had become a more devout muslim but none of his relatives believe he held extremist views. the father of the two suspected bombers said this was all a set up. >> someone framed them. i don't know who exactly did it but someone did. being cowards they shot the boy dead. >> and this morning we are learning more about how the younger bombing suspect spent those days after the marathon attack on monday. according to one report he worked out at the gym, then
7:06am
went to an an on campus party. he even sent out several tweets, one of them seemed to reference the bombings and it read stay safe people. now coming up for you at 7:30 we will have more on this manhunt and will tell you yacht surviving suspect is not being read his rights just yet. >> as we said this week's events ended in the backyard of a home. the 19-year-old found injured and hiding in a boat. this morning we are live at the hospital in boston where the suspect is now being treated. >> reporter: the suspect is still here at the hospital and the latest information we have from police is that sort of the same on the condition that we have heard so far and one thing we are waiting to hear from, hospital officials say that they will send out a news release, first they had plans
7:07am
for a news conference but that's not going to happen. it's important to note that people are out and about here in boston so it's a very different scene from just 24 hours ago. from quite tributes to the lives lost, to pure joy. people around boston found ways to mark the news that the reign of terror that gripped their city for a week was over. >> i just -- i feel like i can go back to school now and know i'm safe. >> reporter: that feeling comes from knowing the two suspects, wanted in connection to monday's attack on the boston marathon are no longer a threat. 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev died after gun fight with police early friday morning. his younger brother, 19-year- old dzhokhar tsarnaev was captured last night after a dramatic day long manhunt that shut down the area. friday night someone spotted the injured teen hiding out
7:08am
inside a boat. after a shoot out with police he was loaded into this ambulance and taken to the same hospital where his brother died earlier in the day. the hunt was over. >> this was an absolutely intense investigation. i do say intense. as a result of that justice is being served for the victims of these terrible crimes. >> reporter: while these images of the attacks will continue to haunt the community, boston is waking up breathing a little easier. for law enforcement the work isn't done. >> the families of those killed so senselessly deserve answers. the wounded, some of whom now have to learn how to stand and walk and li again deserve answers. >> reporter: and speaking of that there is new information right now from a department of justice official saying that federal prosecutors are at the hospital right now. they are working on charges and apparently they have been here since last night.
7:09am
also want to point out that many people still remembering of course the victims today. there are more than 50 of them from the boston marathon bombings that remain in the hospital right now. three of them are in critical condition. >> live for us in boston. thank you for that. a bay area law man may have played a role in the capture of the suspect. some of the swat tactics came from a training program developed by the sheriff of alameda. coming up how law enforcement may have indirectly helped police track down the accused killer. runners showing their support for boston this morning. we are live at ocean beach to tell you how victims are being honored by some who took part in the marathon. >> reporter: that's right. those runner who ran the marathon monday are both physically exhausted, mentally exhausted. they aren't expected to run today but show up in support of

7:11am
>> thank you so much. you are looking at video from a similar event yesterday. today the road runners say from 50 to 150 people will run together on this organized saturday morning run. they expect potentially more people than that since police arrested the second suspect last night. one runner i spoke to said it was the best conclusion to a horrible week of events that started with monday's attack. earlier this week as donnie said the club did another organized run in honor of the victims. they picked a route through san francisco's sunset district that spelled out the words boston. also a boy from martinez, a local boy was hurt in monday's explosion. he is still recovering in a boston hospital today following surgery. we are told he had his first meal yesterday. now i have a call into his family to find out the latest on his condition. runners expected to show up here at ocean beach around 7:45 so as they show up we will bring you more interviews and
